Hello. Or as we say in southwest Virginia, "How y'all doing?"
My name is Kyle Green, and I am a photojournalist recently hired at the Idaho Statesman. Last week was filled with a 2,468-mile journey from rural Virginia to Boise. I notice differences in nearly everything from my time in Roanoke, where I spent a little more than eight years at The Roanoke Times. Accents, terrain, weather and culture are all very different from the southern lifestyle to which I have grown accustomed. One of my favorite songs has a line that says, "changes aren't permanent. But change is."
I am excited about this huge life change and am very happy to be back out West.
On a personal level, I am a husband and the father of two young children, ages 3 and 6. I am an avid trail runner and I love to ski. Photography is both a profession and a passionate hobby. I am looking forward to exploring the mountains, rivers and valleys of Idaho.
Professionally, I feel lucky to be a journalist, and I have a passion for being a visual storyteller. As a photojournalist, you get to see the full spectrum of the human experience, from someone's happiest moments to the worst day of a person's life. I strive to be a dispassionate observer, to be a mirror for the community I cover. I love moment-based photography. The small, quiet movements often found in the margins are usually the most descriptive and meaningful storytelling elements, and I love searching for these moments.
Tell me your stories. Challenge me. Surprise me. Infuriate me. Tell me my pictures are great. Tell me my pictures stink. I love personal interaction and will respect and be intrigued by your observations of life, especially if they are different from mine. I am ready to hear it all and deliver your stories back to the readership of the Idaho Statesman.
Come find me. I will be the one with the camera around my neck.
